2022, Blason de L'Évangile, POMEROL
$108.10 inc. GST
Bordeaux Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Franc
The 2022 Blason de L'Évangile is a dense, powerful wine that very much shows the richness and density of the year. There’s tons of energy, but all of it feels directed inwards in what is a decidedly potent Blason. Strong spicy accents from the Cabernet Franc lift the expansive finish. There is so much to like here. The 2022 is the most serious Blason I can remember tasting in a long time. 91-93 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
Fresh and ripe blue fruit on the nose, really aromatic and inviting with sweet cherry accents. Bright, juicy and clean with mouthwatering acidity and a stony bite to the fruit with clear minerality lacing the finely supportive tannins. A lovely cool and creamy texture, deep and rich, but gentle and calm too, nothing too much or too intense yet still structured and layered. Power comes with the gentle spiced undercurrent, this has energy and polish with lift at the end. Well textured and balanced, still quite serious though in terms of dark fruits with some liquorice and slate on the finish. 92 Georgina Hindle, Decanter.
The 2022 Blason de l'Evangile offers up aromas of dark berries, cherries and rose petals, followed by a medium to full-bodied, suave, supple and seamless palate. This charming, fruit-driven Pomerol will drink well young. 89-91 William Kelley, Wine Advocate.
